Where does it work.... - 03.26.2009, 10:51 PM

I was just thinking that it would be nice to have a place where people can list what vehicles they have installed the slipperential into, how it fit, and if any mods were needed to make it work. It should be pretty universal in size and drop right into a large majority of vehicles, but I'm sure it will take some minor mods to make it work well in others. So when you get one installed post up here with some pictures and any useful information that others running that same vehicle might want to know. An easy place for others to be able to look and see where it works and how.

I'll Start. Installed it in my RC8T tonight. It dropped right in, no mods needed. It has a smaller 46T spur gear vs the 54T stock gear or the 50T optional RC8T gear I was running so I needed to drop a tooth in the pinion to get the overall gear ratio back to the same as it was before. I will probably be looking for the optional 50T slipperential gear once its available.

(Camera batteries are dead so I'll post some pics of it installed later tonight or tomorrow once I get it charged up.)

EDIT: Was just looking it over a little closer and saw that it actually was just slightly rubbing the center diff top plate. I just shaved the side of spur gear slot in the top plate down ever so slightly with a hobby knife and its no problem. Just something to look for if you put one of these in a RC8T.

Picture added:

Some quick speculation tells me it should fit in all Ofna Hyper series, Jammin cars/trucks, and Losi 1/8 should be fine. It likely won't fit in XTM stuff (XTM diffs are a tad longer), or the SH Z-Car (this buggy uses a shorter diff). Other than these, I dunno.

It won't fit in a Kyosho M9 either, it also uses a smaller diff.

Yep. Not a chance.

It should work in Mugen, AE, Xray (808 may requre raising the diff mounts since stock gearing is 42T,but any of the older ones and the XT8 No problem), Caster, Losi.

What about the ST RR? I know ofna hyper diffs have the same dimensions as the ST RR diff case.

I see two things. Is the front bearing fully seated in the diff mount? i tlooks like its is not.

Also there is some wear in the output cup to the front, you can see the Pin from the cvd sitting low in the slot.. Are the outputs hardened?

Yep the bearing is fully in. Nope, no wear on the outdrive. It hasnt even been run yet.

Mike will have to answer the hardedned outdrive question, but if I were a betting man Id say it is. Mike doesnt typically cut corners like that.

The AE(and many others) simply have their bearings protruding from the bulkhead - it will fit all the vehicles mentioned so far in this thread with some shimming needed for the Ofna and older Kyosho and HB stuff(which use larger diffs). It won't drop into the MP9, which has very small diffs - would need slight mods to make it work.

The out drives are hardened - if they weren't, they probably wouldn't make it through a single race. The cvd drive pin is what is worn in Jeff's picture.
